I had the good fortune of having Steven as my attorney.I was facing a very serious charge and Steven took control of the matter. I was looking jail time and i was really frightened of being sent to jail.Steven understood my concerns and reassured me that he would do all he can .We stood before the judge and Steven argued my case,vigorously, with confidence and got my case dismissed. I would suggest anyone needs needs a great attorney to call Steve.

I spent time in prison for prior drug convictions i felt hopeless after receiving another. When i found out my license would get suspended for a possession charge my world would've fallen apart, until Steven fought for me every step of the way. He got my possession charge knock down to disorderly conduct so that I would not loss my license.No jail time!! Best lawyer I ever had!!!! :)

I was lucky to find such a good attorney on my first hand research on internet. I was treated as family not just another case, yet very professional on court, a man of his word with IMPECCABLE character.... case dismissed. Always took time to answer ALL my questions when i was confused, i mean Who gives out the Cell phone to their clients.
He was outstanding in his representation and i highly recommend him to all who are in need of counsel with his expertise. thank you Mr. Schwartz.

I received a speeding ticket in when I was on vacation in Detroit (20 mph) over the authorized speeding limit. Hiring Mr. Schwartz was the best decision I made to represent me as he was able to bring the charge down to a "blocking traffic".
I highly recommend this attorney! Professional, courteous, great attitude and pleasant to work with!

I had multiple cases and probation violations. I was scared to death and lost in direction. I have hired other attorneys that cost me a fortune and did not compare to Steve.
I was fortunate to stumble upon Steve via the internet. What a great break. I have never been sentenced to jail with Steve as my lawyer.
Thank the good lord that I found the best, most responsive and a man I consider a friend and whom I call by his first name rather than Mr. Schwartz.
I highly recommend Steve for any criminal case!

Although I fortunately have not had too many dealings with lawyers, I found Steven Schwartz to be notches above the rest. He is the most personable, helpful and understanding lawyer I have ever dealt with. He genuinely cares and strived for the most favorable outcome, which he was able to get. If you ever need a lawyer, I would highly recommend Mr. Schwartz.

I'm a second-time client. With Steven you can go into court without fear. At my hearing, Mr. Schwartz clearly stood out among the twenty or so other lawyers I observed. Always available by phone with quick response time, he even offered to help me with some extraneous issues unrelated to my case. A true first-class lawyer and above all, a genuinely nice guy. If necessary, I wouldn't hesitate to enlist his services again.

If you need the best legal representation you can get, you need Steve Schwartz. My entire future, including my family's future, was about to be destroyed until I was able to get Steve Schwartz on my side. Steve had worked tirelessly to find the best solution to handling my felony case. He is thoughtful, concerned, energetic, and never makes you feel intimidated or uncomfortable in any way. Additionally, he did an excellent job at keeping me informed about how my case was progressing and always responded quickly to any questions or concerns I had. I can not emphasis enough the positive difference Steve Schwartz made in my life. I am not anticipating ever needing the services of a defense attorney for myself again, however, I would not hesitate a second in recommending him to a close friend or family member if the need would ever arise.

Steven is the most caring and personal lawyer/ man that i know. I am a client and he keeps me informed and is personal to the point of calling and texting just to make sure I am ok even on weekends and evenings. He is very professional and a genuine great human being. He is knowledgeable of what is in front of us and I trust this man with my life. I would recommend Steven Schwartz to anyone who is in need of a great lawyer.

Steven handled my OWI case like it was his only case! He is very honest, listens to you and is always available via phone if you need him! If it wasn't for Stevens quick thinking and knowledge of the court system, I would be in jail. I have referred Steven to multiple friends who have also hired Steven. A+ in all areas!

I hired mr schwartz thinking he would overcharge me and do a poor job I was pleasantly surprised to find that he cared about what happened to me in a owi case and worked extremely hard to get me threw the process fairly. I would recommend this attorney to everyone who has a dui or any alcohol related offense. This attorney got a positive outcome in the 48th district court a court known for zero tolererance when it comes to drinking and driving. Great attitude and a all around profeessional who is a sincere good individual who did not sugar coat the truth. This is the type of attorney every defendant should have representing them in every case. He surely can get you the result you are looking for and or mimimize any negative outcome. Just a great attoney!!!!!!! Wow!!!!

Steve has been my lawyer for over ten years. I have reccomended him to many of my friends, who have also used him. I speak for everybody when I say he is the best lawyer in the tri-county area. I wish I could say more, but words cannot express the gratitude I owe Steve. He saved my life.

wow Steven saved me. I was on probation when the court said i was not sending enough money each month. And had me in front of a judge in days. I was nerves this is not going to be good .steve talk me down and put a plan together that night. We meet at court in the morning. The deal he got me was less then i was sending each month. A friend recommended steve. And now I tell my friends. Hes the really deal.

Steven is a great attorney and one that I’d highly recommend. From personal observation, I know that Steven is hard-working, highly intelligent, talented, and has a great attitude!
Posted by Matt, a Criminal Defense client, Flag
I've worked with Steve on several cases/issues and he is one of the few attorneys out there you can trust. He keeps in touch with his clients and let's you know he has everything handled and under control. I don't know any other lawyers that would drive down to the police station on a Sunday late night to dispute a traffic ticket. If you need a trustworthy, well connected attorney, look no further. He will always remain on my speed dial :-)

Attorney Steven L. Schwartz, did an excellent job assisting me with my drinking and driving case, and provided me with his professional advice throughout the proceedings, to make intelligent decisions during my trial. Steven made a point to show that he understood the conflict that I was going through and worked patiently with me, after my sentencing, so that I could make payments that were convenient for me. He was always readily available, and he was professional and honest during the entire experience. I am very grateful that I had Steven Schwartz as my attorney. Thank you!

great guy to work with much more responsive than other lawyers I worked with.

Over the last 4 years my son has made really bad choices...he's not a bad person...just hangs around the wrong people...Steve has held our hands through several hearings and court dates. He is so incredibly knowledgable of the law and knows everyone in the courts. He has very reasonable rates (by-the-way he's worth every penny and more) I truly don't know what we'd have done without him. He kept my son out of real trouble with the courts several times. Highly recommended!! I am ex-military and a financial planner now. He took care of everything, so I could concentrate on my business.
Posted by Ram, a Criminal Defense client, Flag
Mr. Schwartz spends time in understanding the issue and explains the possible outcome, does not promise the moon and presents a true picture of the likely outcome.
Where he lacks knowledge, he does not hesitate to tell you so and seeks guidance from his peers/mentors.
Highly dependable and he puts you at ease, you will feel as though you have met a doctor rather than a lawyer.
I have had two occasions to engage his services, one for myself and the second for a friend of mine and on both the occasions he came out with flying colors.

Steven is an outstanding attorney that truly cares about his clients. Steven gives his personal cell phone to every client, and is always available. He manages his cases with confidence and efficiency. Steven has a strong, engaging interest, skill, and knowledge in criminal law. I give my highest recommendation to Steven as a criminal defense attorney. He will use his experience, abilities, and genuine concern to serve you well.

I had Steve represent me in a crimanal case. He got my delivery of drugs case reduced to a misdermeaner. He was a bulldog in court. He gave me his carphone number and was always available. I recently read were he got a murderer like 5 years or something. Little known but a great plus in my life.
